Disney has asked 9 of the top designers in shoes to create shoes fit for a Princess. The sketches had been released a while ago but they did not do the shoes justice AT ALL. All I can say is that I better be picking up some overtime at the hospital because these shoes are incredible and belong in my closet! There are designs that include slingbacks all the way to pumps. The concept is that the designers take Cinderella’s iconic shoes and create a modern day version. “Each uses dazzling crystals by Swarovski, who also produced the Ella’s glass slipper for the film under the direction of Academy Award®-winning costume designer Sandy Powell,” according to Disney Style Blog.
Rene Caovilla has created the most colorful, abstract shoe, in my opinion. They take in the blue from Cinderella’s dress which I find fun because the rest of the designs are more focused on the glass slipper portion.
These are my absolute favorite. I am already a fan of Jimmy Choo but these look like something I would wear for sure… perhaps for my wedding??? There is nothing about this shoe I don’t like.
Nicholas Kirkwood has taken more of the glass slipper concept with the sheer sides to the shoes. I love the bow on the back!
Paul Andrew has created a clear shoe with some strategic detailing. I love the jewels on the tip of the shoe and the fact that the back sparkles like Cinderella as she is being transformed.
Jerome C Rousseau has created a more casual shoe, in my opinion. They look like they are made of denim which is an interesting choice. It’s true to this designer’s aesthetic.
Salvatore Ferragamo created glass slippers with a fabulously designed heel. That is clearly where the creativity is truly displayed in this shoe.
Charlotte Olympia has created a literal shoe. It is clear, like Cinderella’s original glass slipper and is covered in stars, like during her transformation. These are probably my least favorite, unfortunately.
Stuart Weitzman has designed these incredible ankle boots that are all blinged out. I love them! This is the ankle boot design and I think that sets them apart from some of the others.
Alexandre Birman designed a shoe that has no clear element to it at all, unlike many of the others. It does, however, still feel like something Cinderella could wear. I actually think these may be the most wearable as they look like an elegant pump and not overdone.
I cannot believe how incredible this collection of designs by these fabulous designers is. I guess I should have expected nothing less. They truly stepped up to the plate.The shoes will be displayed in early March at Saks Fifth Avenue’s flagship store in New York City! I never need an excuse to go to NYC so guess who will be going to see these very soon!
